HONG KONG GALLERY

OVERView

We are excited to present the first solo exhibition, ‘Identity Crisis’ for Clarence Ruth, an extremely talented New York-based artist. The artist will illustrate the change in moderners’ identities and emotions through his iconic character and painting style.

The pandemic has changed our lives in many ways, and Clarence Ruth constantly draws inspiration from that. In June 2020, Oreo the character, created by Ruth, made its first appearance in a very contemporary way, by having a new Instagram account. Just like every one of us, Oreo shows a very pleasant smile on social media, with the eye-catching red lips. However, it is also attempting to tell us that there is much more depth behind the smiling face.
